A New York Times Bestseller Selected as a 2017 ALA/YALSA Great Graphic Novel for Teens: Nonfiction Award winning authors Jim Ottaviani and Leland Purvis present a historically accurate graphic novel biography of English mathematician and scientist Alan Turing in The Imitation Game. English mathematician and scientist Alan Turing (1912-1954) is credited with many of the foundational principles of contemporary computer science. The Imitation Game presents a historically accurate graphic novel biography of Turing's life, including his groundbreaking work on the fundamentals of cryptography and artificial intelligence. His code breaking efforts led to the cracking of the German Enigma during World War II, work that saved countless lives and accelerated the Allied defeat of the Nazis. While Turing's achievements remain relevant decades after his death, the story of his life in post-war Europe continues to fascinate audiences today. Award-winning duo Jim Ottaviani (the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Feynman and Primates) and artist Leland Purvis (an Eisner and Ignatz Award nominee and occasional reviewer for the Comics Journal) present a factually detailed account of Turing's life and groundbreaking research - as an unconventional genius who was arrested, tried, convicted, and punished for being openly gay, and whose innovative work still fuels the computing and communication systems that define our modern world. Computer science buffs, comics fans, and history aficionados will be captivated by this riveting and tragic story of one of the 20th century's most unsung heroes.… (mais)

Good art, but the story wasn't very smoothly executed. ( )

Enjoyable graphic version of the Turing story. Drawn from, but much easier to absorb than Hodges’ dense “Enigma” book. Good, sensitive depiction of facial expression and posture to convey sentiments not said or even thought explicitly – in the drawings of Alan and his mother particularly. ( )

I was hoping this book would be an excellent companion of sorts to the recent film, but it pales in comparison. Like most of Ottaviani's biographies of scientists, this volume is packed with facts but fails to really bring the subject alive for me. And the conceit of trying to frame the narration of the book as an actual imitation game seems like a clever idea but really does nothing but force the narrative into a format that continually distracts.

This is a comic (or "graphic novel" if you prefer) telling of the life of one of the greatest minds of the 20th century, who met a tragic end at the hands of an institutionalized prejudice. It is dense at times and is a little too technical for me, but I didn't find that distracting from the overall story of Turing's life. ( )

This biographical graphic novel focuses on Alan Turing, a brilliant mathematician and logician who could theoretically figure out a bunch of stuff way over my head, and was instrumental in the Bletchley Park efforts at decoding the German system Enigma during World War 2. The structure of the narrative gives different people in Turing's life turns about talking about him - his mother, school friends, co-workers - and took a little getting used to as I had to pay attention to who was narrating at any given time. Well done and intrigued me enough to want to read a full length biography. ( )
